365 Day Photography Challenge – Day 7 Sparrow

This little guy keeps begging for bread just about every day at the air port Cafe, you would think he was really starving.

Truth is, that Sparrows have to eat 5 times their body weight to live every day and I see one very fat little sparrow!

Some people  look like a Sparrow but humans don’t burn up the calories like birds do, otherwise people would not survive, birds convert their fat in one go into CO2 and water. People do that in several stages and that is how we survive.

Birds have a different metabolism. However, a bird that over eats such as a budgie also dies of another type of obesity and liver damage.

Wild birds do well. Caged birds need proper vet nutrition…

    • Terrible thing to kill other birds. It was the nearest thing to a bird . Will try and find some other bird for the next photo closer to a Blue bird but not quite the same…

      I love your Blue birds..Wish them every chance to populate where ever they are.

      Thanks Carol
